Taking A Break

     I'm sorry that I haven't posted recently. I've decided that I am going to take a break for a little while. My next post will be on December 1st, 2012. On December 1st I will either continue posting regularly or write another post like this one.
     I am more than happy to continue with email during this time, so keep them coming! I'll even have more time for email since I won't be writing blog posts, so if you take a second and send me a quick email we can be sure to keep up.
     I'd like to leave you with the link to my friend Kenzie's blog. Kenzie is an amazing girl and we've become really good friends through our arthritis. She blogs about her arthritis, her life, her faith, and fashion. Definitely be sure to thoroughly go through previous posts of her's as well, as there is a lot to be gained from reading her blog.

     I'd also like to leave you with what is pretty much the JRA (and even chronic illness) anthem. Even if you've listened to it before, I would ask that you listen again, because it's worth it. It's an insanely beautiful song and it's pretty darn truthful. If you don't have arthritis, this describes a good portion of it. Because at the end of the day, we all just want to be ok.

     Even though I won't be posting, I will be putting a lot of thought into the future of this blog. I would love to know what your favorite post on here is, because that helps me to take things in the right direction. If one sticks out to you, please post the title as a comment on this post, send me an email, or text me if you know me personally. If you're not sure of the title, just give a brief summary of what you remember about the post and I'll be able to find it.
     I am also open to writing topic suggestions. It's sometimes difficult for me to know what other people need to know if I'm not getting adequate feedback. Again, comment or email me with any suggestions or ideas!



  1. Hi Rachel, my name is Sterling and I really love your blog. I read it all the time! It has even inspired me to start my own blog, "Just a kid with arthritis." I just wanted a way to share my feeling and help me meet new people and cope with my diagnoses of ankylosing spondylitits. I read many blogs, but so far yours is my favorite! Please check out my blog, its pretty new so i only have one post at the moment, but there will be more! btw, I really like your posts about helpful ways to deal with arthritis, so I hope you make more!

  2. Hi Sterling,

    I am most likely going to continue blogging, and your feedback is really helpful. I'd love to talk to you more, so if you don't mind, send me an email! My address is Hoping to hear from you!
